When King Leontes’ wife Hermione persuades their old friend King Polixenes to extend his visit to Sicily, Leontes grows suspicious of their relationship, and convinced of her adultery. Consumed with jealousy, he imprisons Hermione and exiles his new-born daughter Perdita.
With the passing of time (and one of theatre’s most famous stage directions), is there be any chance for redemption?
